Context: I am professional programmer and doing competitions is my hobby. Alas I no longer have the time to put enough time to train appropriately. Still I enjoy doing competitions whenever I can. Typically my rating ranges in the purple/low orange range. However I find it more enjoyable doing div 2 competitions as typically in div 1 I can do only the first easier problems. I don't care that much about rating, if I had the option I would ignore it altogether. Before we used to have the out of competition option but I don't see it in the recent competitions. I know I could in theory create a new account each time I reach div 1, but wanted to know if there are other options. Also what is the reason to remove "out of competition" for mixed rounds?
